A 75-year-old grandpa recently went viral as he carriers his grandson in a basket while he works in the farm. Taking care of his favorite grandchild and making sure that he doesn’t get into an accident, Lolo Juanito brings him while he works at the farm.
Carrying the kid in a basket, Lolo Juanito brings him to the farm or lets him enjoy the ride while he works. When the child gets tired, Lolo Juanito would cut banana leaves that the boy can use as bed on the ground.
It is sweet and also pitiful to see the two in this state, but Lolo Juanito loves his grandson so much and refuses to let him out of his sight. He guards the boy while he sleeps, ensuring that no harm will come upon this sweet little boy.
The old man also plays with his grandson and lets him have fun at home.
They live a simple life, but Lolo Juanito takes pity on his grandson. Based on his experience, he has a hard time in life because he was not able to go to school. He does not want his grandson to have the same experience and be stuck in this kind of situations.
“Pinapasan ko ‘yung apo ko kasi naaawa ako sa kanya dahil iyak nang iyak. Kaya ginamit ko ang basket na bukag,” he told the team from Kapuso Mo, Jessica Soho.
“Ang hirap nang hindi nakapag-aral. Hindi ako marunong magbasa o magsulat. Tumanda lang ako. Walang nabago sa aking pamumuhay. Hanggang 2,000 lang aking alam bilangin. Kaya sabi ko sa apo ko, ‘Ikaw, kapag lumaki ka na, pagsikapan mo na makapag-aral. Para walang mangmamaliit sa’yo at may sarili kang pag-iisip.’”
God bless po, Lolo Juanito and to your grandson…
